Solid waste permitting

Permitting of solid waste sites and facilities is a joint effort between the local governing body with jurisdiction (county or municipality) and us.
  • We conduct a comprehensive technical review of applications for a Certificate of Designation (CD) as a solid waste site or facility to determine whether the location, design and operating criteria of the proposed facility are protective of human health and the environment.
  • Any technical conditions of approval we list in our final report will be incorporated as requirements in the Certificate of Designation as issued by the local governing body with jurisdiction.
  • There is no statewide application form for a solid waste Certificate of Designation. People proposing a facility should contact the local governing body that has jurisdiction where the proposed site is to be located.
